Where has the month gone!

My, has September flown by or what!! I hadn't really realized that I'd neglected my blog until one of my faithful readers made a comment about missing my blog!

Do you want to hear me ramble on or would you just like me to jump right into the latest project? Haha! Speaking of projects, I don't know how long ago I promised to have a sample of my paper bag recipe album put on the blog. I haven't done it yet. And I have a good reason. I finally received my order of the new tasty paper from the Holiday Mini called Apple Cider. I wanted to put up exactly what we'd be making, instead of a sample. If you want to make one yourself, join me on Saturday (1pm to 4pm) for the stamp camp. Laura, for you, we'll set you up after the store closes! *hint, hint*

Anyway, so I nominated a couple of really awesome SCS hostesses to honor and I've been making things, buying goodies, and I needed a card to make. I'm not going to tell which hostess this is for because she might be a reader and not a commentor on the blog. She'll figure me out after she gets the package. So I made this card for her. I tried scanning since it's night-time and not the best time for picture taking. I hope you like it. As always, I love your comments.
I used Very Vanilla for my base, then I used this really cool paper from a mat pack that I either received from a secret girlfriend gift or from another friend. Yipes! I can't remember. But it's a 4x6 K&Company Designer Mat Pad - these are so cool... double sided, so I used the design for one layer and the solid for the other layer. I used Oh, So Lovely stamp set and my prismacolors and gamsol to color. I can understand why this is the coloring method of choice of my sister's. The colors blend out so nice.
OK, so don't forget the stamp camp if you're in the area. I'd love to have you join me.
